This is a blog mostly about... Comic Books (seriously, it's mostly just Comic Books), Magic: The Gathering, Science Fiction, Science Fact, Film, Comedy, Beauty(including Cosplay) and Philosophy. I basically follow people who love comic books, science fiction, and pretty things. Feel Free to Ask any Questions regarding comics, it's my favorite topic of discussion!
“The most terrifyin fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death - however mutable man may be able to make them - our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.”
— Stanley Kubrick

George Petty painted these two beautiful illustrations in 1955. Both are beautiful and very similar. The illustration of the left was titled “WA-TA-HUN-EE!” and was later used for an advertisement by Old Gold Cigarettes. The one on the right was featured in the George Petty Calendar for October 1955. The commentary with it: “My string is tout, my bow is bent to bag a bird of rare descent. Who know where wampum grow on tree and feather big nest for me.”
Like lifting a giant veil, the near-infrared vision of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope uncovers a dazzling new view deep inside the Tarantula Nebula. Hubble reveals a glittering treasure trove of more than 800,000 stars and protostars embedded inside the nebula.
These observations were obtained as part of the Hubble Tarantula Treasury Program. When complete, the program will produce a large catalog of stellar properties, which will allow astronomers to study a wide range of important topics related to star formation.
